Taking to Facebook, the Idaho Humane Society said, “There is a video circulating through social media which we will not repost due to its content which originated in the Treasure Valley.”
“It has been shared through many social media networks and our Animal Care and Control office is receiving an overwhelming number of phone calls and emails.”
“We started an official investigation as a result of this video. This morning the individual was identified and we sent a Humane Officer to discuss the situation. The investigation is currently pending review at the local prosecutor’s office for a charging decision.”

In a second post, they shared, “We wanted to take a moment to provide some additional information to help you understand where we are in the process of learning how this case is progressing through our animal abuse protocols that we are required to follow by law.”
“Is the Idaho Humane Society on anyone’s side? Yes. Always the animals, no one else.”
“Can any local police department impact an IHS animal investigation? No. Our cases go straight to the prosecutor’s office if they have merit.”
“Why wasn’t the dog seized? The dog was not in IMMINENT DANGER at the time, which is defined by law. No matter the sentiments involved, we have to follow the law.”
Facebook; pictured above is a flow chart the Idaho Humane Society made
“What is the status of the case? It is at the prosecutor’s office.”
“What else can IHS do in this case? We have done everything in our authority that we can do. We are a small 501(c)(3) with animal investigative authority provided by municipal code. We have to follow State and City codes as they are written in Idaho.”
“What about the new Federal Animal Cruelty Act…recently signed? It does not apply to this case. That law can only be applied to cases spanning multiple states or that occurred on federal property. It does not supersede state law.”
“If you’d like to see harsher laws for animal cruelty, please let your city and state officials know. Write to them and tell them why it matters to you.”
“The Idaho Humane Society works to protect all animals from abuse. We also believe that because domestic animals are a product of human intervention, we have a very special obligation to them in regard to humane treatment and responsible stewardship. Donations can be made to aid in this effort here.”
Here’s hoping this horrible woman gets this poor dog taken away from her and that the prosecutor will go after her for this.
